Phase Two: Week Three. Day 18| Six Weeks to Shreds

Warm up: 

 
  • 2-3 minute jump rope

Workout:

  • Incline DB flyes: 3 x 21-30. 20 lb (1 minute jump rope between sets)
  • DB flyes: 3 x 21-30. 20 lb (1 minute bench step up between sets)
  • Cable Crossover: 3 x 21-30. 40 lb (1 minute squat jumps between each set)
  • Triceps Pushdown: 3 x 21-30. 70 lb (1 minute side to side shuffle between each set)
  • Standing DB triceps extension: 3 x 21-30. 15 lb ( 1 minute kettlebell swings – 8kg between each set)
  • Cable lying triceps extension: 3 x 21-30. 30 lb ( 1 minute goblet squat – 30 lb between each set)
  • Crunches: 3 x 21-30 (1 minute running in place between each set)
  • Standing oblique cable crunch: 3 x 21-30. 30 lb (1 minute lunge jumps between each set)

As you can tell, today was a much higher rep range and a different kind of burn. I was starting to feel real exhausted before starting this workout but I pushed through, the flyes definitely are harder when doing much higher reps. When doing higher reps, I always use a lower weight that isn’t “too easy” but not heavy either  – I choose a weight that I can lift for the prescribed amount of weights. The cardio between sets wasn’t hard today, I pushed through it fine but talk about the soreness in my legs.

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon
